5″x7″ original pastel on sanded paper
This is one of my favorite things to find in nature. A blooming cholla next to a cholla skeleton. Life and death. Also: the magenta of a cholla bloom in the desert will take your breath away.
💕 Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing.
